Can Cannabidiol (CBD) Fight Metastatic Cancer? According to the latest research the answer is yes.
Date:9/21/2012

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA), a leading hemp industry innovator, is pleased to report on a September 18 San Francisco Chronicle Article, "Pot compound seen as tool against cancer."

The article states that scientists at California Pacific Medical Center who have been researching marijuana's compounds for the 20 years have found that Cannabidiol, or CBD, has the ability to "turn off" the DNA that causes "breast and other types of cancers" to metastasize. CBD is the second-most abundant cannabinoid within marijuana, but does not cause the psychotropic high of THC.

As stated in the article: "We started by researching breast cancer," said scientist Pierre Desprez. "But now we've found that Cannabidiol works with many kinds of aggressive cancers--brain, prostate--any kind in which these high levels of ID-1 are present."

Desprez said he is hopeful clinical trials will begin immediately. He currently has grant funding through the National Institutes of Health, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the U.S. Department of Defense and the California Breast Cancer Research Program.

As previously announced in the MJNA press release dated September 5, MJNA portfolio company, Red Dice Holdings, recently launched its Hemp-based high concentrate CBD health and wellness products, Dixie X, for over-the-counter sales. These Cannabidiol products represent the highest strength of CBD products on the market today, and this same concentrate will soon be used to launch the CanChew Biotechnologies line of CBD-enriched chewing gum.
